Or boot Linux from a usb stick and use it for the internet, no firewall, no anti virus and no cost. After using it for a couple of months now I really believe that Linux has started to make in roads into the windows empire, it has come on a lot in the last 2-3 years.

Thats not knocking apple mac as its a great OS as well, but .

Big waves, small boat ;)

Yep - same one.

Microsoft released the patch for it on the 15th October - unfortunately there are a lot of people out there either running without automatic updates enabled, or an old, unsupported version of Windows (ie XP SP1)
